The Redskins have tendered backup nose tackle Chris Baker the restricted free-agent right-of-first-refusal qualifying offer, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The team has decided not to attempt to retain fellow restricted free agent receiver Brandon Banks.
By tendering Baker with the qualifying offer, which is worth $1.3 million, the Redskins protect their...
Per Grant Paulsen, NT Chris Baker signed a one-year deal on a right of first refusal tender offer for $1.3 million. Meanwhile, John Keim confirms that RS/WR Brandon Banks will not be offered a contract by the Redskins, meaning he will become an unrestricted free agent and can sign with any NFL team that wants him.
Baker can negotiate with other teams for a better deal than...
For some reason, I decided that what the world really needed was thousands of words about Danny Smith. Jamie was nice enough to publish them here.
Arguments about the NFL tend to involve subtle gradations. The question of if Eli Manning or Joe Flacco is “elite” can occupy a nearly infinite number of segments on sports talk radio. Despite the fact that “elite” as a concept...
The Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks announced their inactives just over an hour before their Wild Card Round game Sunday.
The Redskins announced seven inactives, according to the Redskins' official Twitter account:
Quarterback Rex Grossman, wide receiver/returner Brandon Banks, wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe, inside linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy, outside linebacker...
LB Roddrick Muckelroy
LB Vic So'oto
RS Brandon Banks
SS DeJon Gomes
OT Jonathon Compton
OG Adam Gettis
WR Dezmon Briscoe
That means RT Tyler Polumbus will play and, one would think, start. Good news for the Redskins there. That also means the Skins will dress three quarterbacks for the active roster tonight, Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins and Rex Grossman.
Your Washington Redskins inactive list is out. Of note, starting RT Tyler Polumbus, who suffered a concussion last week, is inactive. Maurice Hurt will start at right tackle. Once again WR Brandon Banks is inactives. We have likely seen the last of Banks, barring injury.
QB Rex Grossman
OT Tyler Polumbus
WR Brandon Banks
WR Dezmon Briscoe
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is inactive against the Washington Redskins because of a torn right biceps.
Suggs' status for Sunday had been considered a game-time decision. He injured his arm in last weekend's loss to Pittsburgh. Suggs also missed the season's first six weeks with a torn Achilles tendon.
As expected, tight end Ed Dickson (knee) and linebacker...

Qb Rex Grossman
OG Josh LeRibeus
WR Brandon Banks
OG Adam Gettis
LB Rodderick Muckelroy
OL Tom Compton
WR Dezmon Briscoe
Although most will be surprised to see Brandon Banks inactive, it really shouldn't be a shocker. Banks has struggled with the return game, which is his premier function...

Time to drop the Thumbs Up part. It would be easier to just say, I have no words. Perhaps that would be the simple, more accurate article. How do you lose to a 1-6 team, on your Alumni homecoming, at home, the week before a Bye Week? Simple, you call yourself the Washington Redskins.
Once again, thumbs down to the secondary. Again, receivers were uncovered and they...
Redskins – Buccaneers injury report as of late Saturday evening:
Washington Redskins: CB Cedric Griffin is OUT; WR/PR Brandon Banks, WR Pierre Garçon, T Trent Williams are QUESTIONABLE; WR Leonard Hankerson, S Brandon Meriweather, RB Evan Royster are probable
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: CB Anthony Gaitor is OUT; CB EJ Biggers, CB Leonard Johnson, G Carl Nicks, LB Dekoda Watson are...
Redskins left tackle Trent Williams and wide receivers Pierre Garcon and Brandon Banks have been listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.
Williams hurt his knee in last week's loss to Cincinnati and did not practice Wednesday or Thursday while Garcon is dealing with a foot injury that has forced him to miss the last two games.
Brandon Banks, who is...
According to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan in D.C., Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon (foot) was limited in today’s practice along with safety Brandon Meriweather (knee), Evan Royster (knee) and Brandon Banks (hip).
The Redskins could use Garcon back this week as they get ready to face off against a pretty good Buccaneers team.
The Washington Redskins were losing to the St. Louis Rams by half time, even though they led 21-16. The Rams scored 10 points in the last two minutes, riding a tailwind of momentum as they ran to the locker room.
By the end of the half, the Rams dominated in the most offensive way, by running 38 offensive plays to the Redskins' 24, by gaining 179 yards to Washington's 101...
The Washington Redskins kick off their season this weekend, facing the New Orleans Saints. As of now, not a lot is expected of the Redskins–some doubt any growth at all–but they could easily be misled by seasons of the past. Who am I to judge? I have my own thoughts on the upcoming 2012 season. Here are ten of them.
This team is built to win. They're like a hot light...
It's been quite a hectic week if you're a Redskins fan.Chris Cooley was cut. "Wait, they cut COOLEY?", was my reaction when I read the news.The blogosphere instantly became abuzz with questions, comments, concerns, etc.Cooley, you see, was more than a Pro Bowl tight end for the Washington Redskins from 2004 until last week.He was a fan favorite, much like wide receiver...
I have relatives who are still mad that the Washington Redskins released Art Monk. News yesterday that the Redskins fired fan favorite Chris Cooley ignited a bombshell.
Greg Trippiedi warned me this might happen, but there is still a funereal air around Redskins Park. Poor Captain Chaos might be grappling with the first or second stage of grief (denial and anger). The death analogy...
Keep your eye on these young guys
With two preseason games under the Washington Redskins belt, there has been some bright spots and surprising players that have broke through the mold of being “bench warmers”.
Besides the newest big name in DC, Robert Griffin III, the Redskins have a lot of new and undiscovered talent. The excitement for this team is growing with every day...
Add another player who is targeting a return for the season opener. Adam Podlesh, who has had a strong preseason, suffered a hip flexor on Washington Redskins receiver Brandon Banks' 91-yard punt return touchdown in the second quarter. Bears coach Lovie Smith said he should be "OK," but the punter will get an MRI Sunday morning. "I just felt a little something...
The Washington Redskins have turned over most of the team since the arrivals of Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan. One of the major changes has taken place at wide receiver and it's beyond just bringing in new players; it's a new philosophy–which looks surprising like Green Bay's. In the last two off-season's, the Skins have signed or drafted three of their current...
I just want to start out by saying, "damn I'm good at predicting things." In article yesterday about what to watch for in the preseason opener I pointed out a few players and positions to watch and boy did those things shine through last night.
The good news is that besides a fumble on the second possession of the game the starters for the Redskins played really...
Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III told Ian Rapoport of NFL.com that Santana Moss, Pierre Garcon, Anthony Armstrong, Aldrick Robinson, Fred Davis, Brandon Banks and some other players will join him down in Waco, TX to work out with him at Baylor before training camp starts.
“I’m going to go back and work out with some of my teammates who are...
Following Tuesday's minicamp practices, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said he's informed third year kick returner Brandon Banks that he'll have to contribute on offense if he wants to make the team.
Banks is undoubtedly an explosive player, but nagging knee injuries slowed down his ability to return kicks in 2010 and in 2011. To keep him fresh, Mike...

There are many times when the abilities of extremely talented individuals are nearly impossible to ignore. That’s a fitting description for Nick Taylor. Despite being labeled undersized, Taylor’s talents allowed him to get recognized.
